Close of play

There will be no further play today. Join us again tomorrow!

4:44pm

tomb

Think they would have been poor even without the tragedy that has disrupted them, they were generally at the lower reaches of Div 2 until last season when they squeaked up.

BrianT

144 is a lot for Surrey these days.

Tynevalleyblackcat

That's Surrey all out for 144, so no batting Brucie bonus points for them.

tomb

Oppprtunity to wave your pass at some of the security or doorman and say, how dare you, i'm a member you know, let me in.

BrianT

Still enough time to beat them by Saturday close. Best not to have to go out today with floodlights and a wet outfield, even if the airshow has ended.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surrey now 144 for 9. Looks like no further play today for us and the Worcs v Lancs game has been washed out. We have had worse day's this season!!

Updae

Pretty heavy downpours here still...

4:38pm

BrianT

Free parking when the council boys can't be bothered to empty one of the two machines still working. Although, to be fair, that perk is available to non members also.

tomb

Sit on the members balcony. Opportunity to go to a members Q and a and criticise the players. Cheaper coffee and beer than is served downstairs

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surrey now 138 for 8

brandonia

What's the likelihood of further play today?

BrianT

You can also sit where you like within reason (follow the sun. You get a free membership book and entry to the upstairs members lounge (including when it rains). Also priority booking for Aussie and Tom Jones tickets. I feel I should be on some sort of commission.

manurule175

Thanks BrianT

tomb

To be fair we do get a bit of Saturday county stuff now, if the games starts Thursday or Friday its ideal for me as only need one ore two days leave.

BrianT

Tomb. There is an ECB online questionnaire to make your point about weekend cricket. Worth a look.

BrianT

Includes free entry to 8 four day games, six cb40 games and all second XI games. Mine cost £95. Been a member since 1992 apart from the two seasons where we won the league. I'm a jinx I know. Can't think of better value than a cricket membership anywhere.

tomb

It includes a free soft toy, two bumper stickers and a silly hat

manurule175

So to be a member for this season is 175, and what does that include?

tomb

Its certainly better value than the footy, as long as you dont work monday to friday

bobstersafc

i paid £95 300 less than my football ticket met lots of friends and the crack is great i know where my moneys going

chrissafc

will be interesting to see how much the membership is.

Update

The heavens have opened here again...

3:59pm

manurule175

Thanks noz

tomb

The memberships never work out as cheap as you think when you take into account all the days lost through rain and early finishes inside two and a half days

Boggie1878

do we know what time play starts?

Noz

manurule175

Ah right thanks, what was it for this season just so i have an idea?

Response to manurule175

I think that's being decided at the moment - as soon as I know we'll make sure we get a story on the website.

3:51pm

manurule175

How much will a season ticket be for next season?

chrissafc

just round the corner from where i work. i'll be at the first xi game though.

2XI

Yesterday's win over Worcestershire in the Second Eleven Trophy saw us qualify for the semi-final. We'll play Lancashire next Tuesday at Middlesbrough.

3:35pm

BrianT

Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

Latest

Another inspection is due at 3.50pm as the mopping up begins. Will keep you posted.

3:25pm

BrianT

Wonder if Surrey coach Adams will make snide remarks about the Oval wicket? He has a fair amount of previous.

Update

The rain seems to have stopped - the umpires are out in the middle speaking with the groundstaff. There's a fair bit of water on the covers!

3:17pm

BrianT

I suppose they are one of the richest clubs. Ricki Clark went from sub zero Surrey to Warks. PB thought we were 6th.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surrey 97 for 7

CollingwoodFTM

Good luck to him. He certainly did not seem himself this season. His first two years here were brilliant.

peter_brent

quite amusing a player who can't get a game for one of the bottom clubs goes on loan to the team at the top.

chrissafc

good luck to him

chrissafc

so he gets selected for the 1st team then sent to warwickshire???? how does that work

BrianT

Sorry to see that about Blackwell going. Good luck to him. Hope Warks win league with him in. How does that affect their wage ceiling and can we sign Hashim Amla for a few weeks now?

daleslass

Gutted that I probably won't get to see Blackie play this season but pleased for him. He deserves to play. Durham's loss is Warwickshire's gain

peter_brent

With the rain and batting first Onions might be able to play a full part in this game

Tynevalleyblackcat

Nice to see the wickets are still tumbling at the Oval.

Blackwell

Durham CCC confirm that Ian Blackwell will go on loan to Warwickshire CCC for an initial one month loan with immediate effect. More details on the website.

3:01pm

chrissafc

fair play, he was spot on

chrissafc

the poster harry lime seems to know a lot of stuff. he posted blackwell was in the squad 48 hours ago and said this morning that mustard would bat at number 4

tomb

Yeah, third man = cricket also

BrianT

Harry Lime - Third Man. Still don't get it. Was he a contributor?

tomb

Harry lime doesnt seem to get on here much now

chrissafc

surrey 73/6

BrianT

Please explain that one to us thickies

chrissafc

someone within the club must be posting on that sunderland message board. "harry lime"

BrianT

Their captain is Batty. Forecast rain this after and a bit on Friday. Beautiful sunny day Saturday cos I'm going down to see us finish them off.

Tynevalleyblackcat

A few bonus points to go with the draw would be very useful. Say we can get to 250 and then bowl them inside the overs, we can get an extra 5 points.

tomb

Can't understand why Surrey keep elcting to bat first given the conditions and their recent form, baffling.

chrissafc

as long as surrey fail and worcs/lancs cancel each other out, i'm not at all concerned this game may be ruined by the rain

BrianT

As they did last week. See my previous comment.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surrey now 41 for 5. They won the toss and chose to bat!!

Update

The rain continues to fall...full covers are on.

2:01pm

marchy22

No more play today

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surrey now 33 for 4

tomb

Surrey and Lancs to go down

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surrey now 33 for 3

Latest

The rain has started to fall - covers are on but the umpires are out in the middle with the groundstaff.

1:40pm

Lunch

Lunch here at Trent Bridge - Durham 85-4. Back soon!

1:02pm

chrissafc

:)

BrianT

Don't spoil a good moan with facts!

chrissafc

still shocking how our game has been moved though

chrissafc

worcs game is at worcester.

Wicket...

Durham 75-4 after Stoneman is caught behind off Fletcher on 46. Paul Collingwood is the next man in.

12:51pm

keenasmustard

Rocky gone.

BrianT

I half expect Surrey to lose inside two days. They look like falling apart. Good job for them it's only Middlesex they're playing. Funny how Old Trafford available for the Worcester game. Oh bugger.

Update

Wow...these floodlights hury your eyes after a while looking into them! Durham 75-3 after 27.3 overs, Stoneman 46* and Benks 15*

12:50pm

chrissafc

wouldnt bother me that

tomb

Probly draws all round this week

BrianT

That could be Thursday afternoon if the lovely Carole Kirkwood is right with the weather forecast.

chrissafc

surrey off for rain. lancs and worcs not on this session

chrissafc

i'll reserve judgement until they bat

tomb

Colly should def be higher than 6, especially with Stokes unavailable. At least Smith and Muchall bat against the new ball when they get out.

BrianT

CB1970> Were you away at the weekend?

Cricketbadger1970

Why put Mustard in at 4? He has had his success lower down. Colly should take responsibility and bat higher

BrianT

DL. Don't care. Will decide in two years' time. Doubt if they'll consult me anyway.

Tristan

who is our one day captain, benks or colly?

Cricketbadger1970

No surprise to see Colly still hiding down at 6

daleslass

Brian T Who do you think will be captain ?

BrianT

Collingwood will be skipper until at least the end of 2013/14. Our next captain might not be playing for us today.

daleslass

I agree. Rocky as captain. Build the side around him and have the senior players like Benks and Colly to guide him

tomb

Is Rocky not a bit quiet to be a captain?

daleslass

Looks like its down to Benks yet again

safcluke

Stoneman to be the next Durham captain?

tomb

He's undoubtedly a class player. Love watching him bat

Durham 50

Durham pass the fifty mark, Stoneman 34* and Benkenstein 5*

12:26pm

daleslass

Tomb well I hope we do see him. I think he's a class player

BrianT

I consider that we were lucky to get a player of that quality. Why are we wishing for rain at other grounds? People use holidays, travel distances and pay good money to watch cricket.

marchy22

Only Colly to come of recognised batters

tomb

Could be stroke of luck for us if Worcs and Lancs is rained off, as Lancs v Somerset was in the end.

BrianT

Notts are without Broad, Swann, Patel Adams, Taylor & Gurney. So it's Notts reserves. They did win the toss and put us in to bat so it can't be easy out there.

daleslass

I hope he does go on loan and do well.

tomb

Poor considering they are missing key bowlers

Wicket...

Mustard is caught behind off Carter for 9. Dale Benkenstein joins Stoneman (34*) with Durham 48-3.

12:17pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

3 down

bobstersafc

tele this morning said he was going on lone to warks

safcluke

Good side Notts.

Tristan

well, moving him up from 7 proved a great move. this bloody season!!!!

daleslass

Tomb. I hope we do see him this season.

tomb

Smith has kept his spot as we dont really have any openers to come in.

Tristan

gutted for smith & jennings.

tomb

Aye, but you said you expected him to play, I expected him to be picked against Surrey but once he was left out for that after his 7 wickets I don't expect to see him again this season.

daleslass

Ron but how many times has he failed. Other players fail and are dropped straight away

Tristan

good thing we signed myburgh, woudlnt want our seconds to be short or runs ;)

2XI update

2XI: Raine takes the first wicket. Worcs 54-1. For info, in yesterday's one day game, Ingram took 3-15 off 7 overs. Nice stat!

12:13pm

bobstersafc

smith is not a opener

daleslass

Tomb he can bat and bowl and appears to be in form thats why

ron burgundy

Ah Muchall has been dropped now Smudge has to take the LMC wrath!! One of only 2 to score a century this year!!

BrianT

I see that it Smith's turn for the darts this week. Mustard last week.

daleslass

He is good in the field but he's not good with the bat.

tomb

Dales lass, why did you expect Blackie to play if he wasnt picked for the Surrey game? Smith is 'good in the field, keep him in'

2XI v Worcs (SEC)

2XI v Worcs (SEC) at South North CC. Durham will bowl first after losing the toss. The 12 are: Raine, Singh, Pearce, Myburgh, Pringle, Clark G, Ingram, Coughlin, Weighll, Brathwaite, Buckley, McBeth.

12:10pm

safcluke

Awaiting the usual "he's good in the field"

daleslass

I wonder how many times Smith has to fail before he looses his place.

safcluke

Another fail for Smith.

bobstersafc

your not wrong there colly happy days

CollingwoodFTM

I am not THAT old Bobster, I just prefer to live in the past. Times were simpler. ;-)

bobstersafc

helicopter did the same last year

Update

Durham 40-2 in the 16th over, Stoneman 30* and Mustard 5*.

12:01pm

safcftm33

Haha! ;) I like it.

Tristan

better than anyone else so far ;)

safcftm33

Rocky playing well...?

chrissafc

stick in lads

Tristan

it is aye

safcftm33

Possibly should have yes tristan. It still circling?

Tristan

beginning to think maybe notts have paid this bloody helicopter!!

Tristan

seems an odd decision putting mustard in now, lets hope it pays off, perhaps should have had him at 3 to protect jennings abit.

safcftm33

Mustard next in? Interesting...

Wicket...

Jennings is out lbw to Phillips for 2. Durham 33-2. Next in is Phil Mustard.

11:48am

daleslass

Is rain forecast down there ?

Tristan

humph.

Floodlights

The floodlights are on here as the light has deteriorated - Trent Bridge is one of the grounds where they make their floodlights available for use at all games.

11:44am

daleslass

Police Helicopter - not heard that one as an excuse.

chrissafc

surrey 28/2

Tristan

clutching at straws like. unless notts have paid the helicopter to buzz around ;)

chrissafc

commentator mentioning something about a copper helicopter putting him off?

daleslass

I was a bit puzzled as to why Smith was included. He's not in the best of form

Tristan

it's all bloody fletcher at the minute.

Durham 14-1

Durham 14-1 after Smith is bowled by Fletcher for 3.

11:29am

Tristan

smudge gone

bobstersafc

my god how old are you colly haha

CollingwoodFTM

The Notts attack had Gurney and Carter ealier in the year. Took me back to 1937.

Latest

Durham 9-0 after 4.4 overs, Smith 1* and Stoneman 8*.

11:16am

chrissafc

surrey 10/1

marchy22

No Adams patel Taylor or gurney for notts, seriously weakened side for them

Tynevalleyblackcat

Huge game for us. We need the batsmen to step up to the plate here.

chrissafc

start delayed at worcester

Play begins!

Play begins at Trent Bridge - Mark Stoneman and Will Smith open. Phillips bowls the first over.

11:00am

chrissafc

not too concerned if we get rained off, but cancelling out worcs vs lancs would be good news. remember lancs play surrey last game as well.

marchy22

There is a lot of rain around for us and Worcs

chrissafc

rain for 4 days in worcester please

Tristan

risky having a longer tail but all our bowlers are capable of adding runs so im not worried. lets get to the end of the day with plenty of wickets in hand and tons of runs on the board!

chrissafc

this pitch was bowler friendly last season

Mackem_Dave

Notts won the toss and Colly confirmed on Sky that he would definately have bowled. Claydon is the nominated player to drop out when/if Onions returns

Mackem_Dave

Putting the Blackwell situation to one side. It is strange that with the side still struggling (in CC) to score runs that an extra bowler plays in place of Ben Stokes

marchy22

Who won the toss

chrissafc

happy enough with that team. borthwick is doing well for us, no reason to drop him as our spin option. few selection options which is good. mark wood has performed well lately.

daleslass

Disappointed no place for Blackie. I really expected him to play

Notts team

Notts: Hales, Wessels, Lumb, Voges, Mullaney, Read, Franks, Phillips, White, Carter, Fletcher

10:39am

Tristan

Poor old blacky

Durham team

Durham: Stoneman, Smith, Jennings, Benkenstein, Collingwood, Mustard, Borthwick, Thorp, Wood, Claydon, Rushworth

10:37am

Tristan

Can you confirm the onions status yvette? will he be able to play from tomorrow morning?

chrissafc

we are right in the mix with the cb40 as well after hampshire lost. its very close now

chrissafc

big few days this with worcs vs lancs starting today

daleslass

Best of luck lads. Will be following the game on here

stephsafc

good luck today durham, from the scottish highlands :)

CollingwoodFTM

Good luck today lads, lets keep up the impressive form.

Notts v Durham

A bit hazy at Trent Bridge this morning, but there's no mistaking that the sun is out! 11am start.

9:31am
